Many of us start wondering whether we are going to die. The virus has been fatal in some cases especially to some of us with underlying health complications.

A higher percentage of people with confirmed coronavirus overcame the virus.

Looking at the statistics, coronervirus related deaths are alarming. It is alarming when one person dies, Or two or three. It depends on how you choose to look at it. That’s bad.

Covid 19 pandemic has taken the entire global to simple basics of life like hand washing, covering you face your face when out in the public, making sure that your neighbor is safe.

Even the rich and the mighty can be subdued in Adversity

We live in a segmented society that had created these huge social barriers creating an impression that some of the members of our society mighty actually live longer. It does not matter your type or job being a royal marine or village beggar, the virus put every one on the same scale.

Adversity facing the world today prove that nobody is immune even those in position of power. When British premier Boris Johnson was diagnosed positive for covid-19, it became apparent that adversity does not respect anyone.

As you may be aware, most viruses that we have in the world today do not have treatment. It’s a case of managing the symptoms as the body fights to recover from the attack.
